Ruby Libraries

Hey all,
I’ve updated my ruby, and header files are where they should be
(thanks to all who replied).
But now my problem is that of libraries. I have installed pcap and
ruby-libnet (at least I hope it installed) by typing:
ruby extconf.rb
make
Then, to complete my set, I installed rubyforger using the same
method as described above. The directions say that i require it by
typing
require ‘rubyforger.rb’
in the top of my code. However, Ruby cannot find it unless I’m in the
same directory as the rubyforger libraries. Huh?

Pcap problem: Whenever I require pcap, i get a warning saying:
/usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/powerpc-darwin8.9.0/pcap.bundle:
warning: do not use Fixnums as Symbols
/usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/powerpc-darwin8.9.0/pcap.bundle:
warning: do not use Fixnums as Symbols
/usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/powerpc-darwin8.9.0/pcap.bundle:
warning: do not use Fixnums as Symbols

Did i just download a bad bundle?

Ok, now part 2

Can anyone recommend a good library that allows for packet creation
and editing? With instructions on how to install it (please)?

Thanks

What about

make install

I did that - it says nothing needs to be done for install. Yet I
STILL get this problem.
re download and try again?

Drop the .rb, that will ususally get it to load, otherwise, put the
library in RUBYLIB/site_ruby

Ok. I did that, but it still didn’t work. After looking back to the
readme, is see that I need to “Use the init function in order to set
up the correct interface.” So, uh… What does that mean, exactly?

Ok, I think I answered my own question. The init function is a built
in function which allows you to send the packets.

Unfortunately, though, I cannot get it to load, though.

Oh, my mistake:
https://rubyforge.org/projects/rubyforger

sorry for the noise, was thinking of the codeforpeople gem and didn’t
read carefully.

Nope, it’s rubyforger.
